Have Ya Ever Just had One Of Those Days?!

Well, well, time sure flies, doesn't it?! I hope you aren't tired of seeing my creative inklings, because I am back, again, with another project to show you and another new challenge for you!  We have a new challenge for you, this fortnight, at Open Minded Crafting, and we'd love for you to play along! Our theme this time, for your creating pleasure, is "Fowls of All Kinds." Oh, c'mon now, don't moan and groan - It's not that hard.  Put on your thinking caps and see what you can create - Remember, Thanksgiving is coming up and who doesn't love turkey - It sure is my favorite bird! LOL!

As always, we have an awesome potpourri of sponsors who are generously donating some great prizes.  This time, our sponsors are:

Wow! How's that for some awesomeness up for grabs! Remember, you have two weeks to play along for your chance at one of those great prizes - You may even be chosen as one our DT Favorites too, and who wouldn't want THAT honor, right?!

Hurry over to Open Minded Crafting and play along with us! This is YOUR chance to give us the bird! LOL!  C'mon do it... I dare ya! :D

Now, that we've went over the meat and potatoes of it all, let's review my card details. I've used the image, That's Tragic, by Dr Digi's House of Stamps, colored with Promarkers, My card layout uses the sketch at Sketch N Stash. I have never won a challenge there but I really love thier sketches so I keep trying! One day it will happen, right?! The funny thing about this card... I had been driving down the road, coming home from the casino of all places, and started thinking about this image and wondering what I would do with it.... Then it came to me - I wanted to do this card in one of my favorite color combos - Black, White and Yellow.  I love this color combo, but for some reason I only use it when I have an image that just strikes me as perfect for it - Well, this was one of them, so I hightailed my booty on over to Hobby Lobby to get just the right paper - And I think I found it! Once I bought my paper, I couldn't wait to come home and create! I am very happy with the finished result and feel like this color combo was definitely the right decision.  I love the mix of the patterns, chevron and polka dots, together, The gears in the two corners of the image were punched with an old punch by EK Success.  (I found that little sucker at a yard sale and snatched it up! Woot! What a bargain!) The top left and bottom right corners of the card are embellished with sparkly gold gemstone pearls. I love them and felt they were perfect for this mix of patterns and colors! I finished off the card by adding wiggly eyes to the image - The perfect finishing touch, don't you think?!

This card is perfect for someone who's had a bad day and could use some cheering up!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


  1. A wonderful masculine design. Loving the mix of design papers and autumn hues.
